Tour Details

Choquequirao, also known as Machu Picchu’s sister, is located in the Vilcabamba mountain range, between the foothills and the summit of a hill, in the district of Santa Teresa, province of La Convencion.

The Choquequirao Archaeological Complex is a nine-sector Inca complex with an upper main square, buildings, fountains, warehouses, sacred corrals, the rulers’ residence, a priest’s temple, and platforms.

So, if you enjoy hiking in both cold and warm temperate settings, don’t wait any longer to book this 4-day trip to Choquequirao’s beautiful complex.
